what is the litter busters club?

Litter Busters Logo Contest

The Litter Busters Club is a free program offered to children between the ages of 4-12 years old in Mission, BC. Originally, it was originally named the Junior Anti-Litter Bug Club and was created in 2012.  It is designed to promote education & awareness of the negative impact of litter on our environment & foster environmental leadership within our local youth.  Members are encouraged to be apart of the solution, not the pollution. 

 

Specifically, children will learn:

  • about the types of litter and where it should go (compost, recyclable, and garbage)

  • how litter can harm animals

  • how litter can contaminate and pollute our environment

  • solutions to help stop it

  • Most of all, NOT to be a litterbug!

Members are asked to take the litter pledge:

  • never litter & always put waste in the appropriate place

  • help clean up their Mission by picking up 5 pieces of litter at a local park, their school or near their home (under the supervision of a parent or adult)

  • reduce the amount of garbage they make by reducing what they use or recycling as much as possible.​

On occasion as an option, there will be local community events for the Litter Busters to join.  These events will vary and can include a recycled crafts activity, park or creek cleanup, snacks & educational games.  Please note, due to Covid-19 and provincial restrictions, our group events are currently paused until it is safe for us all to meet again.  

Upon membership, kids will recieve the following from MESSociety:

  1. Litter Busters promotional swag 

  2. Litter Busters activity book

  3. Kids cleanup kit including a bucket & litter picking tongs

  4. Invitation to join 1-2 free Litter Buster community events

  5. Emailed Newsletter (2-4 emails a year)

  6. Recognition & pride for keeping our community clean & healthy.

If you are interested in signing up your child(ren), please click the "register" button below and fill out the form. Please allow up to 2 weeks for application processing.
